Performances at 12 p.m. and 1 p.m.
Enjoy live music in the Clyfford Still Museum galleries with performances at 12-12:45 p.m. and 1-1:45 p.m. by Gregory Walker on violin, performing a program of solo violin music focused on motion and emotion. Motion and emotion are at the heart of centuries of solo violin repertoire, and Walker will treat us to a program including the unaccompanied dances of J.S. Bach and Nicolo Paganini’s virtuosity to the down-and-dirty blues of Gregory T.S. Walker and African-American pioneer Dolores White.
Music in the Galleries concerts are a family-friendly introduction to live music. All attendees are welcome to sit, stand, wiggle, and walk through the galleries while listening to music in a way that feels enjoyable.
